Salford in particular are the perfect example of a decent team with a shocking set of managers who just seem to pick what they think is the best 11 and just hope for the best, not really having a plan b or c for if it's not going well. The typical manager of this level really isn't it.
Perhaps Tuesday night worked so well because Monday night's training session was still fresh on the players minds? Training everyday and having a squad of players that can concentrate just on one job is like starting a third of your games in a season 1-0 up in my opinion.
Also, clear to see today that we might have a much stronger attack this season despite losing Danny Lloyd, but Lewis Montrose hasn't been replaced at all and that is literally the missing piece of the jigsaw.
As for the defence, the way Montrose shielded and kept the ball in midfield, a decent goalkeeper plus Jim's no fouls instructions and tactical discipline was the only reason for our low number of goals conceded - not individual brilliance in defence. Clarke and Smalley both bang average for me.
